    LA's Premiere VC Minnie Ingersoll Tells us How to Win at Life

    The beauty of "EduK8" is that we give you perspectives from people who disrupt and win at life.  While we respect our "educators," we believe there is a need to examine the education system from people who've navigated through what might be broken and figured a way to leverage what is available.  Minnie Ingersoll, not only graduated from two of the top educational institutions, but she also was one of the first 500 of possibly the most ubiquitous online organization in the world: Google.  She's also served as a Commissioner for  the City and County of San Francisco, helped lead Code for America as their COO, started and led a successful startup in the automotive industry and now invests and guides some of the future disrupters like wish, pluto tv & Data Science via TenOneTen Ventures.
